Posted · Add Comment


Join us this Thursday at Pasanella for an event showcasing the multiple French terroirs in which Gamay thrives. We’re honoring Beaujolais Nouveau day, and throwing a party, but the pure wines that we’ll be pouring wont make you regret it on Friday morning. The list of wines available has been finalized!  We’re going to be drinking the following Gamays:


2008 Guillot-Broux Macon Cruzille** (Macon, Limestone soil)

2009 Guillot-Broux Macon Cruzille (Macon, Limestone soil)

2009 Montchovet Bourgogne Grand Ordinaire (Beaune, Clay and Limestone soil)

Loire Valley: (Anjou, Black Loam and Tuffeau soil)

2009 Olivier Cousin Gamay **

2010 Olivier Cousin Gamay

Loire Valley (Soings en Sologne, Clay-Limestone)

2008 Claude Courtois Cuvée des Etourneaux

Rhone Valley (Granite soil)

2009 Hervé Souhaut’s Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet La Souteronne**

2010 Hervé Souhaut’s Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet La Souteronne


** indicates limited quantities of this vintage are available, so late arrivers may miss out!

This is a unique opportunity to taste, side-by-side, the many terroirs in which Gamay thrives, and across two different vintages. We scoured our cellars (and some others) to come up with second vintages of three of these wines.

What better day to celebrate this grape than Beaujolais Nouveau day? The party will get started at 8pm, and will feature enough food and drink to satisfy the thirstiest and hungriest of appetites. Tickets are $35 in advance, $45 the night of the event and you can purchase them at Pasanella’s website here.
